Villa Maria’s Group Winemaker, Alastair Maling MW was pleased with the awards: “For the second year our Private Bin range has done exceedingly well, last year with our Sauvignon Blanc and this year with Pinot Gris. The Private Bin range offers outstanding value for money and awards like these provide our customers with great quality assurance. Picking up a trophy again for best current vintage is evidence of the dedication to quality we have with all our wines and testament to the excellence of our 2010 vintage”.
